NARAL Pro-Choice California Endorses Dave Min for California Senate
UC Irvine Law Professor and Candidate for California State Senate Earns Endorsement from California’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
Orange County, Calif. — TODAY, UC Irvine Law Professor Dave Min, who is running in California’s State Senate District 37 against anti-choice conservative John Moorlach, announced his endorsement by NARAL – California, California’s leading grass-roots pro-choice advocacy organization.
“State Senator John Moorlach has spent his time in the California Senate undermining reproductive freedom, actively working to strip the healthcare and rights of Californians. Orange County deserves far better,” said Shannon Hovis, Director of NARAL Pro-Choice California. “NARAL is proud to endorse Dave Min, who has dedicated his career to putting people first and will be a true champion for Orange County women and families in the state Senate.”
NARAL – California is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2.5 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom.
“I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice California,” said Professor Dave Min. “NARAL continues to be a strong voice in the fight for women’s reproductive rights, and I am humbled by their trust and support.”
David Min is a University of California Irvine Law Professor, father of three, and a former economic policy staffer in the United States Senate and for the Center for American Progress. Min began his legal career at the Securities and Exchange Commission to protect the retirement security of seniors, turning down high paying jobs to serve the public interest. He is a leading economic expert whose research focuses on banking and housing policy.
California State Senate District 37 is located in Orange County and includes the communities of Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Foothill Ranch, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park and is ranked by political handicappers as a “toss up.” The incumbent career politician John Moorlach, an unwavering Trump supporter and anti-vaccination proponent, was soundly rejected by a majority of voters in the March 3, 2020 primary election.
